I've been madly crocheting ipod cozies to get one that will be just right for a friend.  These are all random, "I'm working without a pattern" designs.  The three asymmetrical ones start in the corner with a ch. 3 then increase until the width is correct (in this case, 30G size), then begin degcreasing on the bottom until the length is correct and then decrease across the top & bottom or leave as is for asymmetrical.  I'm inspired by the fringies and think I might make just one more (hey, I still have yarn!) that is more scarf-like with stripes going across.

The small, asymmetrical Nano cozy on the right is what started all this.    I've really enjoyed these, I think I might have to make a couple in all the house colors.  My ipod could certainly use a Ravenclaw cozy...

Hope you like them!

I made 2 more and I like these best!  I found some vinyl in my stash and decided to try doing a window.  I love finding stuff in my stash I forgot I had!

I'm making one more for myself, so I'll write the pattern down when I do that one.  The one on the right is my daugter's.  She requested the tassles.

Thanks!  I just keep playing with the concept.  We currently have 3 ipods in the house, all different sizes, so I have lots of models!  I owe a friend a handmade gift and this is what she'd like.  Just want to get it perfect.  I'm really pleased with the last ones.  Now I just need to pick up a teeny hole punch to make getting around the vinyl easier.  I saw something similar in Stich N Bitch, so thought I'd give it a try.  I follow directions poorly, though... tend to look at the pictures and then do it my own way instead!    Grin

Time to change the yarn in my bag so I can make something with different colors!
